Apart from Shetty, Johar has also been trying to sign Prabhas for a Bollywood film as well. The talented actor had essayed the role of Baahubali to Shetty’s Devasena in the SS Rajamouli magnum opus. Reports of Prabhas marking his entry in Hindi films with a Karan Johar project were rife soon after the record-breaking success of the period drama.

On the professional front, he is currently shooting for Sujeeth’s trilingual Saaho, where he will be seen opposite Shraddha Kapoor.
